Default could a psu cause bsod

i have a board on rma to gigabyte theyre telling me their testing isnt producing the bsod i was having and they say they dont have my psu or video card for testing however i used three different video cards even nvidia and still got atidag.exe bsod when i used ddu to remove the ati driver before i installed the nvidia card and likewise when i was able to repeat the issue with onbaord video so theyre now telling me to have my psu tested
backnote the only way i can reproduce the bsod is by using power director pro to render a video which by default does not use the gpu to render the video
could it possibly be the power supply ?

Poor or unstable power power could be an issue

Also check your power connections to GPU, MB

Mite be PSU

Yes can be poor wall power, UPS with VR will correct line issues

Other re-seat CPU and check for bent pins an new thermal paste
And use a new pencil eraser to clean ram connections on RAM sticks
